After two explosions occurred at the finish line of the Boston marathon on April 15, the Braintree police suspect that the bombs may be the result of a terrorist attack. What do you think?
Two explosions occurred at 2:50 PM near the Mandarin hotel in Boston, 12 seconds and 100 to 150 yards apart from each other, injuring at least 144 people and killing at least 3, including an 8-year-old boy named Martin Richard, at the final line of the Boston marathon on April 15. Police are suggesting that it may be a terrorist attack. Counter terrorism crews are currently being dispatched to the scene and Vice President Joe Biden called it a “bombing.”

The Braintree Police tweeted on April 15, “Explosion at finish. Walking with group. Complete Choas. Possible terrorist attack. 2 explo. 671 Boylston St outside the Boston Public Library-Large crime scene being established-MCI being declared. Numerous serious injuries.”

We do not know if there were any fatal injuries at this time. We cannot at this time confirm if this was a terrorist attack. For updates please go to www.BPDNews.com.”
The blasts happened near the intersection of Boylston and Exeter streets — store fronts were blown out, and dozens of injuries have been reported. Some people were so bloody that they were taken to tents immediately to be treated. Sadly, doctors are performing lots of amputations.
“I saw people’s legs blown off. Horrific. Two explosions. Runners were coming in and saw unspeakable horror,” tweeted NECN reporter Jackie Bruno.
Three other devices were found and dismantled.
Lindsey Lohan was one of the first celebs to tweet, sending out the message, “Sending prayers to everyone who was/is at the
Lil Wayne sent out his prayers saying, “Prayers for Boston” and Two Broke Girls star Kat Dennings sent out, “This is crazy. Glued to the TV, so scary. Thoughts and prayers with Boston right now.”
